Mission Statement

Cardinal Mooney High School, a Roman Catholic school of the Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio, is committed to providing a quality education in the supportive atmosphere of the Mooney Family. Our embrace of Gospel values, and our tradition of sanctity, scholarship, and discipline, enable our students to achieve personal excellence. We strive to develop leaders dedicated to social justice and service in the world community.

Philosophy of Education

Cardinal Mooney is a Catholic high school whose community of students and their families, teachers, administrators, support staff, and alumni take pride in the school’s “family atmosphere” and its purpose to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The high school responds to the needs of its members by providing an enriching environment to help students grow intellectually, spiritually, and personally.

Cardinal Mooney educates students through steadfast traditions of scholarship, sanctity, and discipline — traditions that have been highly valued since the school’s inception. Through worship, learning, athletic, and extracurricular activities the goal is personal excellence and integrity.

Students come to Cardinal Mooney from Mahoning and Columbiana Counties. Because they represent diverse ethnic, racial, and economic backgrounds, students are encouraged to foster and promote greater understanding of others. Ultimately, the high school helps serve the needs of the community by empowering students to develop into productive, responsible adult citizens who are committed to service in the name of Jesus Christ.
